Hello fellow modellers, I thought you might be interested in my range of small model boat kits which i have been selling on a well known auction site. I have started with 6 basic liteply kits based on models i built in my youth. They are all computer drawn and laser cut making them accurate and easy to construct. When i designed these kits it was with the thought that maybe they could be built be younger models with help from a more experienced assistant, therefore they are at what i could call pocket money prices ranging from £29-£39 each. I would be glad to hear fellow modellers thoughts, Thanks.
Hello, As i said the kits are based on models i built in my youth. Now i am retired i enjoy drawing in cad and the challenge of turning my drawings into models, I thought other people might wish to build my models especially younger builders and so i sell the kits at cost. I take on board your helpful comment and will remove them from my advertising.
There would be no need to remove them if you simply follow the correct procedure and ask permission from the rights holder. I have found that Amerang are quite happy to allow people to make use of their old plans.
They were happy for me to reverse engineer the kits, create line drawings and place them on my web site for the use of younger modellers. Maybe you came across them there? If you had asked, I could have given you a .DXF file and saved you some work......
Hello modellers, just a bit of an update. I have been busy designing 3 more model kits, A pilot Launch (540mm), River cruiser (500mm) and a slipper launch, the latter will be available in 2 sizes 460mm & 700mm. I hope these will be available by early March.
